Steppie MD Supports Earth Day with Earth-Friendly Skincare Products

SM_BLOG_2015-EARTHDAY

Each year, environmentalists and others mark the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. April 22 brings celebrations of the decades-long, worldwide campaign to protect our most important and enduring resource – the earth. Touted as the largest civic event in the world, Earth Day is observed around the globe by more than a billion people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities.

Earth Day offers countless opportunities for learning and teaching others about environmentally friendly practices. Volunteer at a beach or forest cleanup. Help launch a community garden. Install solar panels on your home’s rooftop. Plant a shade tree in your yard. No matter where you live, there is sure to be an Earth Day festival, forum or other event in your area.

But don’t let your earth-loving efforts end when the sun goes down on Wednesday evening. Adopt environmentally friendly habits that you can practice year-round and encourage your family and friends to do the same. One beautiful place to start is your skincare routine.

We here at Steppie, MD are passionate about offering high quality skincare products that not only nourish and protect the youthful resilience of your skin but also are mindful of the power and the preservation of our natural resources. That’s why Dr. Michael Steppie opted for using a 95% certified organic formula in creating his Ethereal Beauty™ ANTI-AGING CELLULAR SERUM. His patent-pending Pro Organic Complex™ utilizes the most effective and cutting-edge natural ingredients to help activate cellular energy and to visibly minimize wrinkles while infusing skin with stem cells from the majestic and Sequoia Tree. Not only is Ethereal Beauty™ highly effective in smoothing, strengthening and revitalizing your skin, it’s also far safer than the vast majority of skincare products on the market. That’s because it does not contain chemicals like parabens, polyethylene glycol and sodium lauryl sulfate, the same potentially harmful additives used in oven and engine degreasers, and abrasive artificial colors and fragrances.

Earth Day is the perfect time to free your skin of harsh manmade chemicals that can both mar your complexion and harm the environment. Find out just how beautiful natural & effective skincare can be with Ethereal Beauty™.

Give Your Look a Facial Fitness Workout

When it comes to exercise, we typically think about the benefits to our bodies – Sculpted calves, toned abdominals and strong biceps. But did you know that you can work out your facial muscles in much the same way you exercise other areas of your body? The result is a firmer, tighter, younger-looking complexion.

Facial fitness has been lauded for decades by fitness celebrities including the famed Jack LaLanne. But today, it’s enjoying a new wave of interest, thanks in part to the exploding popularity of spots like New York’s Face Love Fitness, something of a gym and spa for your face, teaching clients effective facial exercises.

Featured in a recent episode of Today with Kathie Lee & Hoda, facial fitness is all about understanding the roles of the two primary types of facial muscles. There are 57 muscles in the face, but only 21 of them are expressive. Those expressive muscles are the ones that allow you to smile, frown, grimace, etc., and they typically get all the exercise they need.

The remaining 36 muscles serve as support systems for the expressive muscles. They’re the ones you want to work out because they’re the ones that will help keep your skin from losing its strength and youthful tone, and sagging as you age. Facial exercises also energize your skin by stimulating blood flow, which oxygenates the skin and gives it a temporary glow.

Of course, facial fitness alone won’t defy all the effects of aging. To help keep your complexion in beautiful shape, adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes a nutritious diet, lots of water, adequate sleep and plenty of exercise for both your body and your face. Also, adopt a daily skincare routine complete with top-quality products like Steppie MD’s Ethereal Beauty™, revolutionary, 95-percent organic facial serum specially formulated to stimulate cellular energy, detoxify aging proteins and boost collagen growth. You’ll enjoy firmer, smoother, more vibrant skin that shaves years off your look.
